Subject Re: [DISCUSS] HBase 3 release plans
Date Mon, 17 Feb 2020 17:56:45 GMT
I share this concern. 

I recommend we build on 8, so can run on any 8 or later runtime, and test on 11 or whatever
the desired next advertised version of the runtime will be. Builds and unit tests would execute
on 8, then whole stack integration tests on 11 (like ITBLL).

Only if a post 8 language feature becomes compelling should there be any need to move up the
bytecode compatibility line. Any thoughts there. I can’t think of a one. Eventually the
value types work might be worth it. 

There may be differences in runtime, like we’ve seen historically. So far we have managed
to navigate them just fine by being careful or porting in appropriately licensed support to
our own util packages. I would expect this to continue to be possible.
